Breast Cancer Pink Day 2018

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK. There are many different types. Thanks to research, more people are surviving breast cancer than ever before and more than 80% of women with breast cancer are still alive five years after diagnosis, but around 60,000 women are still diagnosed with breast cancer each year. Every year around 11,500 women and 90 men die from breast cancer that’s nearly 1,000 deaths each month.

Well Done to Carmel, Teresa & Clare for organising Pink Day 2018. The day consisted of a big raffle and many cakes and biscuits. It was a big success and the day was full of smile’s, fun and laughter.

From Carmel, “Just think about it: a cancer hospice costs around 11 million a year to run, 7 million of that is charity work! If we all do a small bit together we can make a difference. Thank you for everyone who always supports Pink Day each year, you are doing your bit! Be proud of yourself.”
